Greek judges, prosecutors suspend go-slow protest

Greek judges, prosecutors suspend go-slow protest

Judges and prosecutors in Greece have decided to suspend their go-slow protest over pay cuts and take their grievance to court.
Constitutionally barred from striking, the judges and prosecutors decided in mid-September to leave the bench at 10:30 a.m. each day and take no cases after that time of day. That has further burdened a judicial system that already is slow in Greece.
Many Greeks are facing pay cuts during the country's economic crisis, but the judges and prosecutors were angered by their latest ones, which were imposed late last year, retroactive to August.
On Saturday, they voted to take their grievance to the Wages Arbitration Court.
